Clarence Whitehill - I'll Take You Home Again, Kathleen
Recorded 7/30/1914, this has been in my collection since 1957, and probably originally bought by my great-grandfather Charles Caples. The record has developed a 2" radial crack which I have super-glued, but Audacity masterfully suppressed the pop induced. This might not be as full-bodied as Slim Whitman's version of some 40 years later, but it is an excellent example of Victor's pre-war acoustic technology.
